International Walk to/at School Month – October 2014

International Walk to School Month gives children, parents, school teachers and community leaders an opportunity to be part of a global event as they celebrate the many benefits of walking. People from over 40 countries walk to school together for various reasons — the environment, physical activity, safety and fun – all hoping to create communities that are safe places to walk.
